Not much to look at really, going to run shakedown for a while without intercooler.
Basic shanghai, rock steady 6 psi on actuator despite no porting of turbo and sep. Gasses downpipe. If you look really hard you can se the inconel (or no, you cant, but its there)


This is the car

Put a filter on your valve cover breather. Besides that, it looks good.

I still remember the first time I drove my car boosted, I drove it to the shop on a Friday afternoon, and left Sunday night on 7psi. Car felt exactly the same while I drove around all the back roads waiting for it to warm up, then when I got into boost the first time, I just could not stop grinning.

Thanks for the kitten!

The valve cover might get a breather filter, just need to get a plug for the intake pipe first.

And yeah, even though i converted cars before, it was great getting this one into boost but now I've pulled it to pieces again, putting in larger injectors, it'll be up and running again tomorrow night i hope other things to tend to tonight. Brews and such

This one might not be turboed like my previous car but I still think I have more quality time and parts into because of this board.

I can't wait to boost my lil guy. The kits in the mail now and can't come fast enough. I bet the little car and little turbo are gonna be more fun than the big turbo big car(supra) Congrats on getting there.

What injectors are you putting in?

You should have bought the piping that included the bypass valve elbow and such. I wouldn't run more than 6psi without one.

I actually still have mine from the shanghai kit. If I wasn't so lazy, I'd mail it to ya.

plug or breather filter?

Filter gets there if I suck in a lot of oil vapour.
I need to redo my pipes when going fmic anyway, so I'll do it then.
